Kurt Eichenwald doesn’t give a damn about offending anyone, apologizes for not calling Clara Jeffrey a bitch

It’s no stretch to call Mother Jones and Vanity Fair liberal publications, but an online scuffle between Mother Jones co-editor Clara Jeffrey and Vanity Fair contributing editor Kurt Eichenwald seems to show the two jockeying to prioritize liberal ideals. Can we allow just a little bit of sexist language if it advances the cause of gun control?

Jeffrey offended plenty with her ghoulish reaction to the murder of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, tweeting, “So much for good/talented guy with a gun being able to stop mentally ill guy with a gun.” She wasn’t pleased, though, when Eichenwald steered readers to a blog post entitled, “Clara Jeffrey is a Bitch.”

Twitchy’s original post on Jeffery’s tasteless tweet managed to compile quite a few people who expressed their disgust in fewer than 140 characters. Eichenwald, who never even called Jeffrey “the B word,”  needed quite a few more to respectfully disagree. Reading them all earns you 3 credit hours toward a gender studies degree.

It’s a bit too late to stop digging, or to prevent the sideshow. So, this is what the national conversation on guns looks like from the Left?

      Ugh – seriously!

    • HindaRifka

      Wait….who’s a bitch? Bwahahaha, idiots.

      • Lady 12

        And who called her that, and who apologized for it?

    • AmandaJeff Day

      Man that was harder to read than “Pilgrim’s Progress.”

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Wow, that was long, pathetic, and devoid of any real thought or value. So, just another day for left wing journalists.

  • allenbarr

    you know most liberal woman find it a complimant being called a bitch. so all of the sudden a liberal does not like it. i guess when politics are involved it is a bad word.

  • Jack Deth

    Watching two radical lefties try to frame the narrative of an argument is humorous and redundant. But mostly redundant, since neither knows squat about the NRA.

    Seem to remember an old parable. “When your enemy is busily destroying itself. Sit back. watch and pass the popcorn!”

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    I couldn’t get past @kurteichenwald patting himself on the back the entire time.

  • Thevelvetkitten

    K.. I have no clue what I just read..lol. Except,calling someone a bitch..lol. Seriously,all this for that.. cowgirl up and move on…

    • Lady 12

      Yeah… I was wondering, “Who are. These people, and what the heck are they saying? This makes no sense!”

  • FreedomFighter

    Reading all that…..I still don’t know what this is all about.

    • Garth Haycock

      It’s about Clara Jeffrey being a bitch.

  • Maxx

    No thanks, I’ll pass with this drama. I’d rather have my member hog-tied to the back end of a Japanese bullet train.

    • NRPax

      That is an interesting image to go through one’s head before his first cup of coffee. And I’m sure there is some guy in Japan that has tried it and filmed it.

      • John (it true me am)

        Just some guy? Considering what comes out of Japan it’s probably a billion yen industry.

        • NRPax

          Point taken. And it’s probably in its second season by now. *shudder*

  • Guest

    They’re both bitches.

    • bluewaternavy

      my Golden Retriever takes offense being compared to those two.

  • Stone Bryson

    Did Clara speak out about sexism when Bill Maher called Sarah Palin filthy names? Yeah, didn’t think so.

    Last time I checked if a woman calls a man a ‘dick’ nobody whines about sexism, so to hell with her faux claim to victimhood. She behaved like a bitch, so she needs to find her own big-girl pants and own what she did… what she is.

    • Garth Haycock

      Never feel badly about treating liberal women as they treat you. They are always screaming about wanting equal rights – and they are correct to want equal rights – but with equal rights comes equal treatment.

    a bitch and an a**hole spend the day berating each other proving that leftists have nothing better to do and the reason why they and they alone are destroying a once great nation!

  • nc

    There must be a lesson to be learned from this exchange. I’m sure it will come to someone…

  • Lord Foggybottom

    I read three exchanges and realized they were nothing but a couple of crybabies, then I typed this comment and got drunk. WOLVERINES!

  • $1014973

    This is like watching a war between North Korea and China. Can they both lose?

  • http://www.facebook.com/brett.mcmicken Brett McMicken

    couldn’t help but notice this little gem, coming from a liberal: Yes, realize all that. But when someone uses a slur to make a personal attack, does that not disqualify?

    the irony!

  • vanbratch

    I failed. Sorry. Couldn’t take it any more.

  • AWomaninTX

    Many years ago, for a period of time, I belonged to a “mommy board” — a message board devoted to mothers. On that site, there was an area devoted to “debate”. Sadly, too many participated just to fight rather than actually debate topics.

    That twitter exchange was a *huge* reminder of how those women behaved. If you had a valid point and stated it clearly, and it was one they did not like or proved them wrong, it became an on-line cat fight about how you’re “obtuse”, a “B”, a liar and everything personal but what the original point was.

    So which is worse? That those women (and a man or two) threw their fits on-line or that Kurt Eichenwald actually participated?

    • AWomaninTX

      Or that we read it?

  • http://alert-up-usa.com/ AlertUpUSA

    Glad I missed it. Liberal know-nothing’s spouting hyperbole seems to be their idea of being ” in-touch”.

    The basis for many of their arguments is either mis-information or political diarrhea. Arguing or defending an argument is mostly pointless. Especially with angry, older women’s libbers and lesbians. They foam at the mouth after some reality-based challenges (facts and statistics)!

    if only liberals could air out their differences in a peaceful and constructive (and entertaining) way…….by wrestling……..in a vat of sulfuric acid.

  • MJ Pauls

    I stopped reading halfway through, but what I got was “girl fight on Twitter, sans pathetic hand-slapping”.

    • bluewaternavy

      The hand slapping will be filmed as a special on HBO

  • Joe W.

    Well, she IS a bitch, is she not?? And he is a moon bat liberal who believes in the parts of the Constitution that he likes and disdains those he dislikes. What a waste of time it was reading these tow lunatics argue over the word “bitch”.

  • SonicBlue

    It’s fun watching the illogical wrath of one Liberal spew all over another Liberal.

  • aliwilcox

    Reading that exchange was like reading our Twitchy trolls Mark Cooper and Michael s–they both HAVE TO GET the last word.

  • BorderLine Guy

    They are both bitches.

  • DANEgerus

    Bitchy @kurteichenwald calls uber bitch @ClaraJeffery a bitch leading to mutual bitch-slapping claims of bitchiness as each tries to out Liberal bitch the other. If @Toure was dragged in this would be a perfect storm of loser bitches.

    @KurtEichenwald shows that Twitter *is* for essays…

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Oh my.

    Hang on, let me call the WAAAAAAAAAAAAHmbulance.

    Liberal on liberal violence. Can get messy,
